The Unreserved Wine Talk podcast features candid conversations with the most fascinating people in the wine world. Your host, award-winning journalist Natalie MacLean, dives into how it feels to compete in the nerve-wracking World's Best Sommelier Competition, the shadowy underground of wine forgery, the zany tactics of a winemaker who hosted a funeral for cork, and more. Nestled in these colourful stories are practical tips on how to choose wine from a restaurant list, pair it with food and spot great values in the liquor store. Every second episode, Natalie goes solo with an unfiltered, personal reflection on wine. She'll share with you how it feels to be a woman in what is still a largely male-dominated field, her gut reaction to the latest health study that says no amount of alcohol consumption is safe and her journey in writing her next book. She'll reveal these vulnerable, sometimes embarrassing, stories with tipsy wit and wisdom that she's soaked up from 20 years of writing about wine. This podcast is for wine lovers from novices to well-cellared aficionados.

I thoroughly enjoyed the warm and inviting intro to "Unreserved" - the Anthony Bourdain reference is grand. Natalie is so down to earth and a wealth of knowledge on the vast array of topics related to wine. Looking forward to regularly tuning in during my commute!
For your everyday wino
Natalie has a way of taking about wine in a down-to-earth way. I look forward to hearing more of the stories of the “awkward social situation” variety!
What’s is really under that cork!
Natalie’s first new podcast is an eye opener for those who are serious wine collectors. I’m looking forward to future podcasts. For those wanting to learn more about what to drinks, Natalie offers online courses in wine tasting and wine and cheese pairings.
Take the opportunity to listen to White, Red and Drunk all Over now as an audiobook. Natalie will become your resource to everything about wine. Didn’t know drinking wine could be more enjoyable but Natalie has really uncorked a new bottle for me.
